I currenty have xp and vista installed on my pc, I just got my copy of unbuntu daper drake in the mail today and i am dying to try it out. I know there's the live cd option but i would rather install it on a fresh partition. So my question is can I simply make a new partition and install ubuntu on it, and would grub take care of the boot order? Would the boot menu chooser go Windows or Linux than Vista or Xp?

P.S could anyone point me towards a comprehensive xgl guide?

If you have the free space, you can create a new partition. I am not sure if the Ubuntu install will just add it, but you can edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to add the new partition to boot.

The default boot is determined by the configuration in grub and can be any of the partitions you select.
